How To Prevent That Dreaded Double Chin

We all know that as we age, gravity takes control and we say goodbye to our once-youthful faces and welcome our now-saggy bodies.

The chin and neck are the first visible signs of aging for most women, so that's what we'll be focusing on in this article. There's really no way to hide it unless you always wear a turtleneck. Whether you have a double chin from carrying additional weight around your face or from excess sagging skin, here’s a list of recommendations to help you achieve a leaner, tighter, and more youthful profile.

You Become What You Consume

Most people who are overweight also have a double chin, and losing weight is one of the best strategies to get rid of that extra layer of fatty tissue. It's not complicated: cut your caloric intake below your energy expenditure.


Try these:

Whenever possible, stay away from processed meals. Substitute wholegrain options for refined "white" items. Consume chicken, fish, and other lean sources of protein. Keep away from fast food and fried meals. Lessen your sugar consumption. Limit your serving size to what is reasonable.

The face area is often one of the first areas people detect weight loss.

You should be careful not to lose too much weight, since it is easy to seem haggard as you age, and this might make you look older than you really are. You could also discover that your double chin, which was formerly stuffed with fat, has shrunk and sagged to nothing. Whilst losing weight can help some people get rid of their double chins, it won't work for everyone and you'll probably need to combine it with the other methods discussed here.

Toning the Face

Facial exercises use the same muscles as regular workouts, in case you didn't know. There are a total of 43 muscles in the face and another 18 in the neck; each may be given its own mini-workout to help tighten, strengthen, and minimize sagginess and premature aging symptoms.


Smiling and laughing frequently also have their benefits, as they require significant muscular effort. Simply put, a tighter jawline is a sign of happiness. It's also undeniable that a happy face is more attractive than a frowning one.

Try chewing gum as a means of jaw exercise. Chewing is a full-body exercise for the jaw, requiring the utilization of four distinct muscles.

Creams and Medicines

There are a plethora of anti-aging cosmetic products on the market, each one promising to do something different (tighten, lift, prevent wrinkles, halt aging, repair, regenerate, etc.). It's no surprise that consumers are left feeling bewildered by the options. The last thing you want to do is spend a small fortune on the newest serum just to find out it brings you out in spots because let's be honest, it's costly stuff. If you take away all the marketing jargon, you're just searching for collagen and vitamin E.


It's also possible to experiment with some homemade combinations, which will save you money. Wheat germ and olive oils, in particular, are excellent for preventing water loss and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
